Gary Kubiak announces Case Keenum will start Sunday against the Chiefs.— Mark Berman (@MarkBermanFox26) October 17, 2013
Wow. Why is the Texans' third-string QB, a guy who's never played a regular season snap in the NFL, starting at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, you ask? Well, because of this:
Kubiak rules out Matt Schaub for this week. #Texans— Tania Ganguli (@taniaganguli) October 17, 2013
And then presumably because Gary Kubiak thinks Case Keenum gives the Texans a better chance to upset the Chiefs than T.J. Yates.
Wow. I'm not saying this isn't the right call, considering Schaub can't go on Sunday. I am saying that it goes against everything we know about Gary Kubiak. Going with the untested and unknown over the known quantity, even when that known quantity looked awful against the Rams?
Wow. Share your opinion in the Comments. Case Keenum is the starting quarterback for your Houston Texans. Wow.
